In logo redesign, there's an "evolutionary" and "revolutionary" approach for company's seeking an updated company logo. Central Oregon Ranch Supply decided that they desired a substantial and modern logo redesign which would imply that they wanted a revolutionary logo redesign, but they also wanted to make sure that their long-established brand recognition was not ignored, which called for an evolutionary logo redesign. Kinetic Branding made sure to accurately balance the needs of their client.
Kinetic Branding wanted to make sure they designed a "logo" and not an "illustration" when approaching the logo redesign. Many companies start out with a logo that looks more like a complex illustration rather than a simplified and well-designed logo that emits instant recognition.
The original logo was a complex illustration with a rancher on horseback with seven head of cattle. The principles of successful logo design is to simplify, with the mantra "less is more." Major companies like UPS, Starbucks, FedEx, Apple and Microsoft all redesigned their corporate logos by simplifying the original design.
Balancing the subtleties between evolutionary and revolutionary logo redesign, Kinetic decided that a limited display of rancher and cattle silhouettes could work as a reverse (or negative) image within a modern mountain-scape to maintain long-standing recognition. But Kinetic also realized that a simplified logo shape and a modern typeface would create the perfect balance between an evolutionary and revolutionary logo redesign.

Kinetic Branding recently completed a logo design for a European fashion brand called Sì Amore (translated "yes love"). Kinetic designed a heart right into the logo using the top half of the lowercase 's' and 'a' letters.
The new logo design is simple yet sleek, fashionable yet fun, and classy yet creative. The small circles at the end of the letters make the design ornate and attractive for women to wear on fashion apparel.
